Heroes 5.5 update RC15 Beta15 fixes:

– fixed scenario ‘In Search for Power‘ had become unplayable, 2 objectives have been adjusted (and their descriptions).
– The Plague tent ability is significantly more powerful and the new description reads as follows: ‘The First Aid Tent gains the ability to damage enemy creatures. The damage dealt is 20% more than the tent can heal. Plague shots do not consume healing shots, but will be depleted when there are no healing shots left.’
Kaspar starts with advanced defense instead of first aid.
Divine Guardians perk is added back into the game, but it no longer adds t7 growth and is renamed divine guardian (singular), the perk replaces twilight and is only available to a select few ‘good’ classes that cannot learn dark magic: Knight, Ranger, Druid, Engineer, Flamekeeper. The other classes still learn Twilight.
– boots of levitation is lowered to major artifact and clarified desc.
– boots of swift journey is raised to relic artifact and value increased to 36000, making it very unlikely placed in early zones
Nightmares and Hell stallions swap most of their stats and their names, the new ‘hell stallions’ have cursing attack instead of fear, since fear is tactically. contradicting searing aura, which fits better with a tankier unit. Nightmare name fits better with black horse with fear ability.
– removed adventure luck from Soldiers luck as skill got a lot more potent and now academy also has a proc ability.
– added ability primordeal to elementals (to protect them from chain shot when playing Sorcerer class).
– implemented new system for preventing abuse with memory mentor, instead of more intrusive ‘complex knowledge’ text all skills that cause ‘mental scarring’ start their description with “Adventure Skill: ..”, when using the memory mentor a warning is included in the default popup that any skills with this indication will cause mental scarring and remove 2 random primary skills. (A milder effect, but more skills are tagged, such as each level of logistics, necromancy).
– fixed silver city magistrate perk boosting mana regen.
– fixed grok being gatekeeper for witch huts and town building mechanics.
– fixed calh being demonlord for witch huts and town building mechanics.
– fixed Kilghan start army.
– fixed pathfinder’s aid kit appearing from battle sites.
– fixed or improved descriptions of dark avenger, vitality, eternal servitude, primordeal, lifedrain, spirit link, spymaster, preparation, cult master.
– added purge to Archmages, removed energy channel.
– spectres – 2HP, poltergeists – 1D.
– vampires life drain ability reduced to 30%.

ARMG:

– added new ARMG template series ‘Loop’, for PvP games with easier return to town, updated ARMG manual with many revised text.
– added new team templates 4P – Ladder – XL and 4P – Ladder – H
